Seriously this was such a blessing of a place to discover. We found this place through a recommendation and I would absolutely visit again. The whole property is beautiful and nestled in nature. You can catch the sunrise from your own balcony and fall asleep to sounds of the flowing Ganges which is practically at your feet. The staff was... More

During our recent (and first) trip to India, we spent three nights at the Himalayan Hideaway after a few days of exploration in Delhi and Agra. This was a lovely change of scene and pace after some time in the noisy, crowded, polluted cities. The rooms are named after famous Himalayan trekkers, which is a charming detail. We stayed in...

We stayed 2 nights and were delighted with it. Sitting on your balcony in the morning with a coffee while birds flitted around and the Ganges flowed by in the valley below.

This retreat is blissful! Little cottages tucked into a lush hillside with the sound of the Ganges lulling your senses. The grounds are an oasis of calm and tranquility. The cottages are immaculately clean and well thought out with details like mosquitos screens on the windows and turn down service in the evenings. Mandhav and Aditya went the extra mile... More

What a wonderful surprise to end my travels at this beautiful place. My cabin overlooked the Ganges and the sound of the River lulled me to sleep. Best Indian food I had on my whole trip.

While booking this hotel we checked our friends who are locals in Rishikesh. Nobody seemed to know for certain about this. We took a chance and booked it drawing a parallel with Tree of Life Jaipur. We were not disappointed. There are a few points to note though 1. The lodge is situated about 17 km from Rishikesh on NH... More

We came to Rishikesh for a belated honeymoon and were recommended the Tree of Life. A beautiful setting right by the Ganges and away from busy Rishikesh. The room was good with a great view of the river. The staff were attentive and helpful. And the food was also really good.
